The Weekend Blog (Vol.56)

Guess who’s finished their degree?!
On Monday I sat my last ever exam. It didn’t go too well, but I was skipping off campus with pure joy once I has finished it. Tyrone and I celebrated with a Pizza Hut.
I keep saying I’m unemployed, but I do still have my part-time job, which I guess will end soon as it kind of relies on me being a student. So I am on the hunt for a job. My aim is to apply for one job each day of the week, excluding weekends. It’s a difficult time because you constantly feel like you are being judged each time you send off an application form or attend an interview. You question every sentence you write and every answer you give.
What if that has completely messed up my chance of a job? What if I’m not putting across my skills in the right way? What is they think I’m not suited for the job because my degree is in geography, yet none of the jobs I’m applying for relate to my degree?
It’s tough, but I’m trying not to get too stressed about it. As I mentioned in Thursday’s post, I purposely made sure I would have enough money to get me through this summer without a job. Surely I will find something in 3 months. Surely.
I’m trying to use this period of “unemployment” in the best way possible, so I am trying to catch up with all the things I have set aside over the last 6 months. I’m definitely a lot less stressed, even with the worry of trying to find a job.
Today is the day of the Geography Ball. I’m excited but also sad to know that it will be one of the last times we will all be together, other than graduation. I hope to show you some outfit pictures next week (but there’s a sneak peak in the top picture).
Also, I’m off to a blogging event tomorrow in Manchester, if I can get up in time to catch a train. It certainly will be a struggle after a late night at the ball.
Have a great weekend!
